I would like to correct a spelling error. Surname should be spelt Dickinson not Dickenson. This was my Great grandfather. 27 Irwin Crescent. It has been imputed for years 1938,1943,1951,1960
Great site...and so useful. I was surprised that there was no Belmont Road (Belfast) in the 1870s, 1880s or 1890s...it was clearly in existence!
I thank you for providing analysing the details of people and places from the Belfast Street directory. It is an excellent service to which I have just made a £20 donation. I have used the site to track Hughes families in Servia Street up to 1960 but I can't get any further. Can a look-up be carried out for the Hughes families in Servia Street after 1960, please? The names I have are James Hughes (no 10), blacksmith, Thomas Hughes (59/59A) horse dealer, and Joseph Hughes (59A) . I believe the horse dealers had stables nearby. I only need details of Hughes families in the street after 1960. Michael Hughes
Many thanks for all the information on your website. The street directories are invaluable. I have just noticed the postcards you have transcribed. There are some that interest me in particular, how do I find out more about them? Do you have them? are they from your relatives? The names that interest me are Martin, Adams, Mackintosh (all Newtownards). Many thanks again! I look forward to hearing from you.
This site is a source of enormous delight for me. I'm fascinated by local history and built heritage, and the information here - and the work that has gone in to the site - is superlative.
I just hope you can help me on my research about the Bank Buildings, your site gives this information, under 1819 Miscellaneous Notes 1787 - Bank formed; partners, John Ewing, John Holmes, John Brown, and John Hamilton. Issued Notes payable in gold. 1787 - Second Bank; partners, Waddell Cunningham, C. Ranken, W. Brown, and John Campbell. Issued Notes payable in gold. Who would have built the Bank , Reading this does it mean The 4 John’s owed the bank before Cunningham and his partners, does the second Bank mean the same building but new owners, meaning Cunning , I would appreciate it if you could help me understand as his would help my research. Thanks Joe
Thank you so much for such an invaluable database. I'm researching the Cowden families of Belfast and your site has given me much information, links and leads.
I have really enjoyed browsing this site. My grandfather and my great grandfather were both in the Wars. I will try to send in details. This is a way to record that all sides of all of our communities were Patriots. Well done!
Hi, have over the years found your site very helpful. Would like to take this opportunity to pass on some info to you, re Lost photos,' Biddy Taylor Coleraine Whiskey. The Kitty in the pictures was my grandmother, Martha her sister, Biddy and Daniel her niece and nephew. If you require more info, would be pleased to help.
I love having a look through this website. I would like to know how I can add my great grandfather's name to the list of soldiers?
Well done a lot of hard work went into developing this website. Keep up the good work
